Segment-First Pedestrian Detection Technology Available for the 2018 Ford F-150

In 2016, the Ford F-150 was the only large pickup truck to earn an IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK. It was one of the only models to earn the highest rating on the small-overlap front crash test, and it featured a collision warning system.

Competitors including the 2017 Toyota Tundra, Ram 1500, and Nissan Titan have no collision-prevention technology at all.

Be a Hero by Wearing a Seatbelt When You're Riding Behind the Driver

Do you ever ride in the back seat of a car without your seatbelt on? It's not against the law, and sometimes it's hard to find the belt in the back seat. You're pretty sure it's safer back there than the front, anyway.

Those are a few of the most common reasons the IIHS heard in a recent survey about why fewer people buckle up when they're in the back seat.

2018 Ford Focus RS Gets Limited-Edition Performance Gear

It seems likely that a new generation of the Focus will debut in 2019, making the 2018 model year the last for the current generation. That means that the 2018 Ford Focus RS will be the last in the current generation, which is a shame. But as a swan song for the model that signified a return-to-form for one of the world’s favorite hot hatches, the Blue Oval has added some impressive new gear.

Do You Have the Tools You Need?

If you need to pack a roadside emergency kit, what exactly do you need to pack? You should make sure that you have a First-Aid kit, bottled water, and nonperishable food items.

Do not forget to pack jumper cables, a tow rope, and flares or reflective triangles. You should also tailor your kit to your area. If you have poisonous snakes, then you should have a snake bite kit. If…
